If you are thinking of buying a property to let, the mortgage is one of the most important considerations. Many banks and building societies offer buy-to-let mortgages, specifically for landlords as you cannot take out a standard residential loan.
Buy-to-let mortgage rates
Buy-to-let mortgage rates vary and are dependent on the risk of the mortgage to the lender as well as the deposit available for an individual to put down. Buy-to-let mortgages rates are often higher than residential rates.
With a buy-to-let loan, mortgage lenders will look at the expected rental income and some may require a minimum earned income too.
You can usually choose between a range of mortgage deals, including fixed rate and tracker loans. Arrangement fees also apply and they can be high.
Your property may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.
The Financial Conduct Authority do not regulate some types of Buy-to-Let Mortgages.
